You Won't Believe What This Pooch Swallowed

When your pooch starts acting weird and not eating or drinking, you know you need to take him to the vet. What you might not know is that he ate something weird when you weren't home. 

In Petey's case, that something weird was seriously weird. In fact, it's hard to believe it fit in the five month old dog's body at all. That's because Petey ate a toilet bowl scrubber -a whole 15" toilet bowl scrubber. 

After a quick surgery, vets were able to remove the brush and Petey is now recovering just fine. “It was the one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen in veterinary medicine and the strangest surgery I have ever performed,” said veterinarian Dr. Yvonne Kline.  

As a past owner of dogs who'd eat anything that doesn't move, I found it quite impressive, but quite believable. So PLEASE try to avoid Upworthy-style titles unless you're being very very very ironic about it. They are, if not a plague, a pox upon the internet and one that will leave significant scarring.

When I was a kid, my second-oldest sister's boyfriend had a bull terrier like this one. It would eat anything. He gave it a tire once - as a chew toy - and the dog ate most of it. Not the steel belts, but damn near everything else.
